Hommes Fashion 4: Vittorio in Florida

This is going to be a very long post, I just wanted to put together some nice photomontages of Vittorio and Margherita in their new outfits, it came out to be a full fledged ultra-long instalment of the Travelling Dolly Series.
I have never been to Florida, but Sasha was there two years ago and we selected some wonderful pictures he took on his trip there.
This was his itinerary. Vittorio and Margherita will start from Miami, then will go to the Keys, The Everglades, Naples, Edison's House in Fort Myers, Tampa, Orlando and Cape Canaveral!
(I want to go too Sasha!!!)



Vittorio's suit was my first attempt at a male complete outfit, I had to fix the jacket several times before I was able to get something that resembled what I had in mind. Now it looks acceptable!
This was the pattern I tried to use:

in fact it is a bit too complicated and detailed for a fashion doll, so this is the only jacket I sew using it.
Enough for Vittorio's suit. Margherita wears a dress inspired by a Tonner fashion from last year's collection.

In the end I only kept the general line, as this viscosa fabric I choose wasn't exactly willing to cooperate!

All pictures are by Sahsa.

Miami

Ocean Avenue

Versace's Home


Key West

Are you shure this is a bus stop?

do we really have to go to see Hemingway home? I have sore feet!

Hemingway Home

You were right, this is  a great place!


Mallor Square - admiring the acrobats

I think I like you

Miccosukee - They are going to take a boat ride in the Everglades,




Naples - What a gorgeous beach! and they didn't had their bathing suits....Margherita is a bit upset



Fort Myers - Edison's Home



Tampa


Orlando - Disneyworld

Are we going to see the Muppet's Show, aren't we?
Cape Canaveral

This place was fun!!! I always wanted to be an astronaut

Vittorio and Margherita are quite a lovely redheaded couple, they photographed beautifully together, and in the end he's not such a boring guy as she thought!


As Florida's nickname is "the sunshine state" (and I believe it deserves its nickname, look at the light in these pictures!!!) our soundtrack shall be "let the sunshine in"!

  5. As usual, a great post with lots of wonderful photos. I love the new couple. And, I think you did a fantastic job on their clothes!! Indeed, the pattern you found is quite complex! As you've discovered by now, doll clothes don't follow the rules as human clothing. You have to modify and simply even to the point of breaking lots of rules. What counts is how it looks when it's finished! But you've already figured that out!!! That said, my new guys are pointing to your blog and waiting for me to "deliver the goods!" LOL! Very picky these new dolls!!! Not like the Ken dolls who are just happy to be standing next to girls with silly looks on their faces!!!! Big hugs!

    1. Maybe too many photos, but I couldn't resist! Thank you April, yes I'm learning a lot from my mistakes, and your tips are always so useful. I sometimes allow myself to be tempted by very complex patterns, then I cry from frustration, I simplify, and finally get it right. Anyway, male's fashion is so rewarding!
      These guys are worst than the girls! they always want to be in the spotlight and are so choosy too! LOL
      I look forward for your new guys' wardrobe!

  6. Every other photo, I was exclaiming: "Why, THAT ONE is my favorite," so there are definitely not too any photos!

    I think the one on the fanboat landing is my favorite aesthetically, and the one with the alligator is my favorite for humor, but I reserve the right to change my mind every five minutes.

    The suit jacket is fabulous,and of course Margherita looks comfortable and chic for all occasions.

    1. Hi Smaller Places, thank you! I'm so happy you liked them. I have a lot of fun preparing the photomontages, but one can never tell if the result is as funny!
      Now I have to finish my Christmas and New Year's eve projects, then I'll start working on some more travels!

  8. They had quite the trip. I enjoyed it as usual. I got extra excited when I saw the drafted jacket pattern. I've always wanted to draft patterns like a pro. I keep buying the books to learn,and never taking the time to do so. I'm hoping all the beautiful clothes created by you, Matisse and some of the other dolly sewers will get me back into it in 2015. Lovely outfits!
